Haven’t we had all that we can take?

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

OK, another soapbox day for me.  We received a letter in the mail a couple of days ago, and then I read this article on my homepage this morning.  My husband and I have flawless credit – we always pay our bills on time, don’t carry any debt on credit cards.  Well, it seems that we and others like us are being punished for not providing banks a way to charge us for something.  So, annual fees are perhaps going to be exacted upon us weary taxpayers who have played by the rules and met our obligations.  Follow this link to the article, and if it affects you the same way it has affected me – SPEAK OUT!  The big banks will find out that we won’t take it anymore if we let them know.  Haven’t we all had enough????????

Pumpkin poop?

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

OK – not my choice of words.  I would use pumpkin goop, but whatever you choose to call it,  here’s a handy and informative article I found online today.

Follow this link to find out what to do with all of that stuff inside the pumpkin – you know, the pulp, the seeds, etc.  And, you’ll find out how really nutritious it is for you.  Here’s a hint from little old me – every morning, I cook oatmeal.  Now, this is not the handy dandy packaged stuff.   Get the oats in the big containers, please!  Cook according to your directions, and I always use milk!  Then, when you remove it from the heating surface, stir in some brown sugar, cinnamon, and about three tablespoons of canned pumpkin which you can get all through the year in your grocery store.   (Store the remainder of the pumpkin in a container in the  refrigerator.)  Voila!  It’s as if you were having a slice of pumpkin pie every day!  Yummy! And there is a giganto amount of Vitamin A in pumpkin.  I have not had a cold or anything like it in many, many years – great antioxidant!  I guarantee it is a healthy, tasty way to begin your day, and it is the sort of meal which sticks with you for hours.  I don’t get hungry mid-morning.  There are times when I even go way past the normal lunchtime, because I am busily creating, and my stomach isn’t telling me to eat!   That’s a major accomplishment for me!  Hope you find some useful tips from the article, and that you try out my breakfast suggestion!  Enjoy!

Whew !!!!!!!!

It is nearly showtime around here, and I have the dining room to prove it!  Who eats in the dining room when you have tray tables?  Who uses the kitchen table when there is creativity going on?  These are burning issues, aren’t they?  haha!

As you can see, things are rolling along.  In less than two weeks, I have a big fall show at the Raceway complex in Mechanicsville, VA, just outside Richmond.  There will be hundreds of exhibitors, so if you are in the area, come on out.  Show hours are as follows:

Friday, November 6     10 am – 9 pm

Saturday, November 7     10 am – 6 pm

Sunday, November 8     11 am – 5 pm

Loads of fun, lots to see, great food – how CAN you miss this!

Hope to see you there!

Here’s a look at what I will be taking!

Enough of this!

OK, today is one of those days when I have to get out my soapbox and climb aboard.  I read, with disgust, about the size 4 model who has been fired because she no longer fits into the clothing which she is to model!  PULLEEEZZZE!  She happens to be 5′ 10″ tall, and weighs 120 pounds!  I don’t know about the rest of you, but the last time I was a size 4, I was probably in the womb!

Take a look at this link, and think about what this says about women, about pr, about self-image, about the emphasis to be shaped like a twig.  Success in life is not determined by the label in your collar, or in your waistband.  Success, in my opinion, comes from contentment with yourself, contentment in your own skin.  if you have that, you can achieve whatever your heart desires!

Something’s coming!
